Missouri health measure supporters spent $100,000-plus

More News

JEFFERSON CITY | Supporters spent slightly more than $100,000 to promote a successful Missouri ballot measure that attempts to defy a key part of the new federal health care law.

The measure approved by voters in August says government cannot require people to have health insurance nor penalize people who choose to use their own money to pay medical bills. It clashes with a new federal law requiring people to have health insurance or face penalties beginning in 2014.

Campaign finance reports released Thursday show Missourians for Health Care Freedom raised about $125,000 and spent about $114,000 promoting the ballot measure.

There was no organized statewide opposition group.

Voters approved the measure by 71 percent.
